Depends if you fly in gear and passengers and deadhead the upper section. Also depends on how backpackerish you pack.
It's usually 2.5ish around that time. If you are used to low water boating, 2' is not at all challenging. If you are not, you will wonder what hell you have got yourself into.
My last trip was at 2.1 with an 18' cat fully loaded. 1 wrap that took 10 minutes to get off of with a boyscout pull on a throwbag.
One night stay between boundary and sunflower. If you suck give yourself another day
Note: Indian campsite just past the ramp looked pretty good, but maybe taken if the boundary is not staffed. It probably will be staffed around that time.
Pistol looks good. There is no shame in staying at the first hot springs past velvet. The first two days will be the toughest until you get past pistol
Don't be a pussy. Pack light. Practice your rock dodging on some local low water rivers. If needed, fly food and coolers into Indian
